A 20 min video from the rally in Portland demanding jobs and not tax cuts. There are millions of people who are still without a job after the 99 week maximum of unemployment insurance has ended. Tens of thousands of Oregonians will lose benefits this Spring.
Additionally, the groups will call on Congress to endorse existing jobs bills and promptly initiate the massive public works program that is needed to fix the economy, repair our infrastructure and do so as much as possible in a green and sustainable manner.
The Sunnyside Employment Self-Help Group was founded in June 2009,
to serve unemployed and underemployed workers in the Sunnyside and
surrounding neighborhoods of Portland.
We offer a monthly potluck as a place to share resources,
tell our stories and support each other as we
seek employment in these tough times.
